ROLLERS.

“I couldn’t wait for my mum to let me have rollers in my hair. My two older sisters, after they’d get their hair pressed, they’d use the pink foam rollers to achieve the mushroom hairstyle that was popular in the 80s, and I thought they were the coolest big sisters in the world. I loved their look, and I thought my sisters were so dope.” - akR
